polyembryonic cambuca
« on: March 29, 2016, 12:48:55 PM »
I have one polyembryonic cambuca with three trunks... Would it be best to cut the weakest plants or can I keep them together and approach graft when they get bigger? Or can I leave them growing together? I would prefer a smaller tree over time if they will happily grow together.

Well I don't know a lot about Cambuca, but are you sure the seed is polyembryonic? Some Jaboticaba's sprout multiple stems, but I am not sure if those are from genetically different plants. I personally would just keep all three of them and let it grow out. But again, I am no expert.

Jaboticabas are normally poly. I have split them up into separate plants before.
